About Us:
Nicholas Parmigiano

My name is Nicholas Parmigiano and I live on Florida’s Treasure Coast. I have been a Physical Therapist since 2002, after graduating from the State University of New York, at Stony Brook, with a Master’s Degree of Science in Physical Therapy. Since graduating, I have become a ACE-Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Kinesiotaping Practitioner, and Functional Movement Specialist, and continue to expand my knowledge by attending as many continuing education courses as I can.

I was attracted to the Physical Therapy field when my sister required Physical Therapy at the age of 21 for bilateral hip replacements, during her recovery from Leukemia. I also witnessed my father attend months of Physical Therapy after a near fatal car accident. Since graduating from Physical Therapy school, I have worked as a Physical Therapist in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Orthopedic Clinics, Hospital Outpatient Clinics and for multiple Home Care Agencies. I have provided Physical Therapy for patients of all ages with a multitude of diagnoses. These include cardiac and pulmonary conditions, Parkinsons Disease and other neurological disorders, Joint Replacements, Spinal Surgery and various other Orthopedic conditions, Balance Deficits, and General Deconditioning. I have worked with athletes recovering from injuries, weekend warriors, school age adolescents, middle age retirees and the frail elderly.

Testimonials:

I signed on with Nick Parmigiano on reference from my current trainer after herniating a disc in my lower back. I was always active and wanted to continue my lifestyle without re-injuring my back. On my first Physical Therapy session, Nick Parmigiano showed me how to stretch and strengthen my back. Correct posture and smart ways to do the exercises which I had always done in addition to new kettlebell and core exercises to add to my repertoire. He provided me with an exceptional Physical Therapy DVD for lower back/whole body strengthening which allowed me to work at home on my fitness while my back recovered. I found that I was seeing results by working all the right muscle groups and had no lower back discomfort from these sessions and DVD home exercise workouts. My back actually was feeling normal again. Nick encouraged me to not restrict my activities because of my lower back issue, but to continue to use smart body awareness to avoid injuring myself again, which has proven to be the most use for me. Nick was extremely professional. His information was cutting edge. His techniques gave me results beyond my expectations. I have recommended KB Fitness to several of my friends who have struggled with the same back issues I have experienced.

Nick Parmigiano has been my therapist since February 2012. He has been working with me to recover from a full knee replacement and also a secondary knee manipulation. I am also disabled with a bad back since 1995 and Nick has taken that injury into consideration. Nick is very aware of my limitations with regard to the additional injury. He has made adjustments, where needed, in the exercises, to fully utilize the sessions to get the full benefit for both injuries and not aggravate the older existing injury, so that we still get to the degree of usage needed for recovery. Nick has explained what I can also do at home, in layman’s terms, and that will complement the exercises we do with/on the equipment for rehab. His working knowledge of Physical Therapy is outstanding and explanation of what he needs and expects to accomplish with our sessions. Nick is compassionate and understanding and puts you at ease with his knowledge and ability to help you return to good health.

Nick Parmigiano is totally professional and has a lovely personality. His Physical Therapy knowledge is extensive and he explains the different therapies in understandable language. I have gained my strength and my pain has diminished appreciably, having acute calcium pyrophosphate. I would have no problem in referring him to my friends. I’ve been an athlete all my life (a National Figure Skater) and I’m now 85. He has gotten me strong enough to ski again this winter. He is a remarkable and talented young man.

Nick Parmigiano is my client’s Physical Therapist. He visits her home twice weekly and assists with strength training exercises and education. As her nurse, these sessions with Nick provide me with practical strategies and suggestions to use for her care and transfers. An example of her progress is one year ago, when I began this case, she was quite weak and compromised due to end stage renal disease with hospitalization and initiation of hemodialysis. She required VERA Lift for all transfers. Within a few months of Nick’s Physical Therapy, her strength improved enough to transfer with a walker, return to her hair salon appointments, and utilize a wheelchair transport van rather than a stretcher transport for dialysis. Within another few months ambulation progressed with the walker and standby assist….eventually up to 25 feet, four times each session. She is thrilled with her accomplishments and quite thankful for Nick. Nick is always punctual, professional, kind and motivating. My client and I both consider Nick’s “individualized and goal-oriented” Physical Therapy imperative to her optimal health.

It took fifty years of crippling injuries, complicated by a degenerative condition and failed surgeries to reduce me to the state I was in – stooped over, helpless, in excruciating pain and very angry. I couldn’t stand up straight or get around without a walker, and often wore a neck brace. I just wanted to be able to walk again without help, to hold my head up, and throw my shoulders back, to look alive again. It seemed hopeless and I was ready to give up when Nick Parmigiano was assigned to my case.

Most of my doctors said I shouldn’t get my hopes up. The only treatment they could suggest was Physical Therapy. I was VERY leery of Physical Therapists, having been set back by a few that I had previously worked with. Imagine my state of mind when they sent Nick Parmigiano to work with me. Nick is the first person who encouraged me to get well. Everyone else said they would do the best they could, but doubted that I would ever be completely well again.

Nick is a quiet, dignified, unassuming, handsome, erudite gentleman who exudes confidence. He didn’t frighten me a bit. I almost cried when Nick explained how he thought he could help me. He explained it very clearly so that I was able to understand it and believe it. And he HAS helped me. He seems to know when I can’t tolerate heavy massage or long walks and changes his treatment accordingly. Nick helped me establish Physical Therapy goals that are reachable – we set little steps instead of giant leaps. He not only explains the method, but illustrates it as well. I’m not completely healed, but I’m stronger every day.

Thank you Nick and may God bless you and keep you safe forever.

My name is Lisa Goldman. I had shoulder surgery on my left shoulder after being injured at work. I was sent to KB Fitness for Physical Therapy. I highly recommend Nick Parmigiano as a Physical Therapist. After only a few weeks, my range of motion improved greatly. He also gave me home exercises which helped me out a lot. Nick Parmigiano is a personable individual who knows his job and does it well.
